So have had a trip over to Durham as there are a few places I'm interested in exploring over there, and this is the first on the list, Durham County Hospital.

It was first erected in 1853 in an Elizabethan style, at a cost of £7,500, and held 44 patients, this was upped to 50 patients by 1886

The site closed back in 2010 when the new more modern hospital Lanchester Road Hospital was finished being built.

Since 2010 the site has remained vacant. In 2014 planning permission was sought to demolish extensions and return the main building back to its Victorian state and named "Viaduct Court". With a new building of a large block of halls on the South West side, it is proposed the site will house 440 students. The plans for the new building are being referred to as "New Hall"
So not sure how long this full build will still be here for guys so if your after a mooch down rather sooner than later.

Unfortunately when trying to get in to the mortuary it was sealed tight and was no chance of getting in without causing a lot of damage so just left it until a later opportunity may arise.

this question is unlikely too receive an answer,
very strange first reply hows about introducing yourself and loading a thread or two?
I'm sorry about this.... I am very new to this forum and don't know how to go about asking questions as such. Any pointers would be appreciated as I have only made my account today. Sorry if I don't know what I am doing. Thanks for the reply either way.
